Well, this was a fantastic surprise. I chose this as my ‘pre-work’ tea. As I’m unable to make my own drinks throughout the day (I survive on black coffee from a machine and my own bottled water at work), I try to choose something I’m relatively sure I’ll enjoy before I leave the house.
I currently have a wheelbarrow full of pumpkins sitting in my back garden, which I grew myself on my allotment plot and plan to carve this week ready for Halloween, so as I have pumpkins on the brain right now, the name of this tea shouted out to me.
Considering ‘apple’ was the first name in the list of ingredients, and ‘freeze-dried pumpkin pieces’ the last, I was expecting this to be more of a fruit infusion than anything else. But oh no, this… THIS was all about the pumpkin. Maybe it was because, y’know, pumpkins on the brain, but I don’t think so. I got a lot of apple, and it was gorgeously spicy from the cloves, but the pumpkin taste was so much stronger than I’d hoped for.
This was delicious! I could still taste the pumpkin when I arrived at work. I have a fair amount of this left, which I think will see me through my current craving for pumpkin teas, but I’d possibly carry on drinking this right through the winter months. The spicyness to it is enough to warrant the name Winter Warmer.
Flavors: Apple, Cloves, Pumpkin, Spicy
